Typical Issues in Construction Litigation

Our lawyers help clients resolve disputes involving:

Minimizing Litigation Costs

We represent owners, owner-developers, contractors and design professionals in construction litigation. Our New York City construction litigation attorneys are sensitive to the costs of litigation. One way we work to minimize expense is to staff litigation as cost-effectively as possible, being flexible in how we assign paralegals and attorneys. Another way we keep control of costs is by trying to prevent litigation altogether, drafting contracts with an eye to areas of potential litigation and working to eliminate ambiguities.

The Role of Our New York City Contract Dispute Attorneys

We try to resolve construction disputes in a manner that is practical from a business perspective, cost-effective and at the earliest stage possible. That may involve mediation, arbitration or other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Resolving disputes might require only a letter informing the other side of what is at issue and how it can be resolved, or it might require a trial and/or appeal. Our attorneys have been litigating construction disputes for many years. We are equally adept in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. We work with consultants whenever necessary to help our clients prevail.
